I was very pleased to have the opportunity to interview the great historian and popular educator Jacques Pauwels for Liberation School. The first part of this two-part discussion on “Global Class War” is entitled “From the French Revolution to the Russian Revolution.” Click here to learn more.
I had a wonderful conversation with Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman yesterday on “By Any Means Necessary” (click here to watch or listen). We discussed Ukraine, Nazism, fascism, the history of WWII, the PR-propaganda complex, racist police terror and much more.
I was honored to be interviewed by Brian Becker on “The Socialist Program” for BreakThrough News. We discuss the deep history of Nazism in Ukraine, as well as its contemporary manifestations and root causes. The conversation develops some of the arguments I’ve made in “Nazis in Ukraine: Seeing through the Fog of the Information War” and “The U.S. Did Not Defeat Fascism after WWII–It Discretely Internationalized It.”
I was honored to be interviewed by Lee Camp about my recent Liberation News article, “Nazis in Ukraine: Seeing through the Fog of the Information War.” We situate the current conflict within the deeper history of NATO, fascism & Ukraine.
I was very pleased to participate in this book Launch for Domination & Emancipation with Daniel Benson, Rosaura Sánchez & Antonio Vázquez-Arroyo. This was a collaboration between The People’s Forum, the Critical Theory Workshop and RED – Radical Education Department. One of my essays in this book, entitled “Critical and Revolutionary Theory,” is available for download here.

We discuss my background in French theory, my analysis of the intellectual apparatus under capitalism, the involvement of the CIA and other organizations in the intellectual world, the limits of cultural Marxism, historical materialism, and much more.
I just published this deep dive into the real story behind January 6th, which benefited immensely from feedback from so many people.
Excerpt: “Over a year after the harum-scarum storming of the U.S. Capitol, there is ample evidence that it was an inside job. Not only was the security detail intentionally minimized to the extreme, but decisions were made at the highest levels of the chain of command to allow a right-wing mob to rampage through the building. At the forefront of this antidemocratic horde, as we shall see, there were fascist or semi-fascist organizations whose leadership has multiple direct ties to the military and intelligence agencies.

It was a pleasure to be interviewed, along with Claudia de la Cruz, on one of my favorite news and information platforms: The Socialist Program. We discuss socialist lessons from January 6th, including the signs of an inside job, the rapid rehabilitation of Trump, the history and current manifestations of fascism, the limits of the Democratic Party and bourgeois democracy, the need for a United Front from below, and more…
